SRC Racers earn nine golds at VT Senior Games

The Vermont Alpine Senior Games were held at Sugarbush’s Lincoln Peak on March 8th. It was a two-run NASTAR format on Racer’s Edge and open to anyone over 55. Surgarbush Racing Club members, very familiar with the course, came away with nine Gold Medals — one in every class they entered. In fact, Club racers only won Gold.

Championships were for five-year age groups from 55 to 89. For the women, the winners were: Laurie Landau (60-64), Caryl Hurwitz (65-69), Ann Fender (70-74) and Louise Messner (75-79), On the men’s side the winners were Doug Day (55-59), John Wilson (72-75), Richard Jones (75-79, Bernard Pistilli (80-84) and Bob Stevens (85-89). They are all considered Champions of Vermont.

Club racers have supported the Games since they came to Sugarbush. SRC has ended it’s successful Thursday race series for 2015 but will continue to be active on the slopes. They will have a costumed fun race on March 20th and will be supporting the Mad River Valley Health Center in the Chez Henri Cup races on March 28th.
